Leadership at Scale- Better leadership, better results


With organisations undergoing unprecedented shifts and the nature of work moving to an increasingly decentralised model, leaders now more than ever need to help their organisations adapt quickly to new realities. Despite leadership development being a top priority for most CEOs, the results seldom achieve their objectives. Leadership programs fail to make a meaningful difference to business performance, and organisations fall short on the leadership talent they need.

Many leadership development programs focus on bringing universal leadership qualities to a few individuals in a company. Our research shows that the approach is not effective. In today’s world of constant change and decentralised decision-making, organisations need to drive leadership throughout the organisation. That requires a new approach.

Grounded in insights from over 375,000 data points and the global experience of more than 25 senior leadership practitioners, Leadership at Scale shows how to drive leadership effectiveness that reaches the entire organisation, adapting to diverse contexts and achieving impact at scale.

Illustrated by a fictional step-by-step case and numerous real-life examples, the book identifies four principles as the key to success:

  1. Focus on the leadership behaviours most effective for driving organisational performance
  2. Engage a critical mass of influencers across the organisation to reach a tipping point for the change to become self-sustaining
  3. Design programs for lasting behavioural change, using the latest adult learning principles based on neuroscience
  4. Integrate the program into the broader organisational systems and measure the program’s impact

Combining research and rigour with practical application, Leadership at Scale is required reading for today’s leaders who seek to unlock organisational performance through leadership effectiveness.
